    what the fuck does this mean?

    A fairly old new year tradition was the personification of the last year as an old man and the new year as a baby, with the old man passing the torch.

    In this instance, the old man looks to be trying his damndest to keep the baby safe.

    I get it, but it is drawing from old symbolism people don't really adhere to any more.

    But the old man has a scythe? Since when does Father Time have a scythe? Shouldn't the new year baby be 2017?

    The comic's presumably from a year ago.

    I assume the scythe is the creator's subtle hint that the year is ending.

    We're having Taco Bell for dinner. Living up that heathen life style.

    Also I got my magic wand and the people in the sex shop were fucking rad. So if you're ever in Troy, NY hit up "Amazing".

    Sitting at home playing games and reading the forums/watching Giant Bomb videos. Same as every night, since I don't like the taste of alcohol and I rarely go outside to go anywhere and I don't have any local friends. I guess around 12:05 i'll look at the clock and think "huh, oh right." then get ready for bed.

    Watching the Russian New Year celebrations on their channel 1. Imagine if we had every celebrity in the U.S. attend a non-stop Christmas concert, and the sole goal for all you plebs watching is to become ultra-rich enough to attend.

    Good music though!

    Finally. 2016 is gone. Shoved out the door like that drunken guest who you wished you never invited.

    I watched across the sound, looking at Denmark as they once again spent a lot more on fireworks than we did (seriously, the night sky over Helsingør was lit up for over 30 minutes with fireworks explosions blanketing the sky like a rainbow AA barrage) and the words of the actor Ernst Hugo Järegård comes to mind.

    I'm glad 2016 is over. Literally the worst year of my life, what with my brother passing away and all. Everything else that happened this year was just the shit icing on the shit cake that was 2016.

    I hope that 2017 is better, but I don't have much reason to think it will be.

    Its Father Time and Baby New Year. They're pretty traditional symbols going back centuries. Basically Cronus and Baby Jesus and traditional anthropomorphization of time.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Father_Time
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Baby_New_Year

    My plans involved doing nothing. Little Deus Ex, little Overwatch, little reading.

    It was excellent. Just what I needed after a Xmas that involved 4 Christmas day family gatherings

    Father Time is usually depicted as an elderly bearded man with wings, dressed in a robe and carrying a scythe and an hourglass or other timekeeping device

    I watched a livestream of the proceedings for 32 seconds so I could bother / smooch my already sleeping wife at the appropriate time. I'd blame the kids, but we were already feeling lame and old the year before they turned up. They were just a convenient excuse.

    Ended up celebrating the new year on the road near Des Moines. Saw some pretty fireworks from the highway at least!

    That old man is super worried about brown people.

    It's drawn by Gary Fucking Varvel (political cartoonist of the paper where I live). He's very, very worried about brown people.

    He got in some shit a couple years ago for drawing a Mexican family sneaking into a white family's house for Thanksgiving dinner ("thanks to the President's immigration order"). Then, this year, he got into some more shit for a drawing he did of Indy 500 winners where he drew them all as white dudes (Juan Pablo Montoya: not exactly the whitest guy ever). So yeah, really worried about brown people. He's got a bad case of "economic anxiety", and is a fucking right-wing nut-job in general.

    Not at all surprised that emnmnme ran across that; might've heard about it on some right-wing radio.
